There are millions upon millions of photographs on Google Maps. Somewhere among all of those photographs, there are a few that are so strange, or so amazing, or so’shaky,’ that you don’t even realize they exist.
Top 8 most mysterious images on Google Maps
We can find all kinds of images on Google. Because Google collects photos from very diverse sources: Photos from satellites, photos from drones and automatic shots, photos from Google cars on the street.
Among them, there are images that make many people find it hard to believe that the News of Australia and the New York Post of the US have compiled this year.
There is a large star formation in a remote part of Kazakhstan, which has not been confirmed for many years. Initially, it was thought to be related to occult movements. However, it is now believed by some to be the outline of a park (if used or not).
Lips in Sudan
There is a giant lip, almost 1km long, on a hill in Darfur (Sudan). But perhaps those lips don’t send a message at all, as scientists think it may be formed by a difference in the color of the sand.
This island in the waters of Australia is called ‘ghost island’ because it has been previously reported: 24km long, 5km wide (so big it can’t be missed); however, now, on Google Maps, it is just a faint outline that is not clear what the island is. It is very difficult to know what happened to the island.
Pictures in the Gobi . Desert
Deep in China’s Gobi desert, there is a peculiar region, with seemingly randomly drawn white lines. Currently, it is thought that these are Yagi antennas, used for weather monitoring and atmospheric research.
The lake is as red as blood
No one knows why a lake outside the city of Sadr (Iraq) is bright red. Everyone speculates about this mysterious phenomenon, but so far there is no official explanation.
‘Face’ in Canada
In a barren area of Canada, on the ground there are lines that look very much like a human face (side view). Most likely this is just due to the random rock formations.
Giants of Atacama
A humanoid figure (also very much like a robot) up to 119 meters long has been carved into the earth in Chile’s Atacama desert. Some individuals still believe that this figure has anything to do with aliens. Although this has not been verified, scholars assume the figure was made between 900 and 1450 BC.
There is a blurry image that many believe may be an unexcavated pyramid in Egypt. However, this is not something that can be immediately seen to see if it is or not, so it is still controversial, not sure if it is a natural or man-made construction.
